    Can you please bring back Los Colognes. One of the best bands in the last 4 years. Also, can you have them play on a outside main stage and more then one day. Thank you.

    • Mile of Music says:

      Hi Mark! We’ll definitely pass this along to our talent coordination team. We love them as well. 🙂 Thanks for reaching out!

  • Thom Jones says:

    While i realize she’s been there two years in a row, bringing Megan Slankard back again would, I believe, bestow wealth, health and miles of blessings to the coordinators of the miles of music. Please consider it – she is worth it!!

    • Mile of Music says:

      Hi Thom! We’ll definitely pass this along to our talent coordination team – Megan was part of the Bose Troubadour tour for Mile 4 and definitely has rave reviews after her performances!
